Description: Jason Clark is a part time, sole authorship knifemaker from O'Brien, Florida. Jason has been a Florida Law Enforcement Officer since 1997 and knows what it takes to make a high functioning knife that is meant to be used. He even offers lifetime free sharpening for any knife he has made!
The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth, drop shut action -- easily opened with one hand using the ambidextrous flipper toggle. It uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The 2-1/2 inch drop point blade is high performing Nitro-V stainless steel with a bead blasted finish. Nitro-V is a martensitic stainless steel with a chromium-based composition created by the New Jersey Steel Baron company. Nitrogen and vanadium have been added to the composition of AEB-L to improve edge performance. The resulting blade has an extremely keen, long-lasting edge and is just as tough or tougher than similar carbon steels while being completely stainless.
Presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood handle scales are set on bead blasted titanium liners. The free floating backbar is made from stonewash finished titanium which keeps the knife light, but strong. The inside of the backbar is laser engraved with the IKBS logo, the steel used, and the rockwell hardness the steel tested at. The handle is finished with a deep carry pocket clip mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
